Arranger WESTENDORF, CRAIG
Voicing/Instrument SATB SACRED A CAPPELLA
Publisher MARK FOSTER MUSIC CO.
From the Mark Foster catalog, here is an especially pictorial and dramatic spiritual for Holy Week. Craig Westendorf has chosen an expressive melody to recall Christ's concern for His mother. It is direct and powerful without sentimentality. Sung a cappella with baritone soloist, the repetitive use of the word "nailin'" beneath the second verse is particularly effective. Take My Mother Home could be used within the context of the passion reading by liturgical churches and is also suitable for Lent or Holy Week. All congregations will find this poignant and unique anthem to be a dramatic and moving addition to worship.
